Samsung has finally unveiled its Galaxy Note 5 after months of speculation. Now, it is inevitable for gadget lovers to compare it with arch rival Apple's current flagship device, the iPhone 6 Plus.
With the iPhone 6s Plus expected to be announced in September this year, some may wait and see what it has to offer. But for now, the battle is between the new Galaxy Note 5 and iPhone 6 Plus, which was released last year.
Which device should you buy?
Buying a device has got a lot to do with each individual's choice and brand loyalty, but if one is to go purely by specifications and features, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is perhaps the best phablet available in the market today.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is a little thicker than the iPhone 6 Plus but weighs less. It has a 5.7-inch screen with 515 ppi (pixels per inch) compared to 401 ppi in iPhone 6 Plus. Its RAM is four times stronger and it has a much better camera than its rival.
Gadget lovers looking for a powerful device should consider buying the just announced Galaxy Note 5, as it is way ahead of Apple's iPhone 6 Plus as far as features are concerned. The upcoming iPhone 6s Plus too may not match up to the Galaxy Note 5 in features if leaked information is any indication.
